    It's hard to help you without knowing what's wrong. Provide us screen shots of your battery life stats and provide screen shots from GSAM, only then will we be able to help you out.

    It's really annoying is there any way to reduce the amount of battery youtube uses . I charged it to 100 percent 3 hours ago and down to 67 percent 😑

    I get close to 2 days on a full charge. Screen time is generally 4 hours. I have all the things enabled that people say to disable (GPS, Sync, etc). I removed a few apps that I wouldn't use but I don't think they were anything that would drain the battery anyway. Everyone's needs and uses are different. I'm not a heavy user.

    Use WiFi instead of DATA for watching videos.

    DATA requires the phone's transmitter/receiver to be active which requires battery power.

    WiFi is very frugal of battery use.

    The screen shot shows that for over 3 hours your screen was on, wake locks are solid as is Wifi. Not sure how long you were actually streaming content during that timeframe, but I think you need to use external power doing all this, if you expect to get decent battery life.

    Just looking at all those active apps in your bar would answer why your battery life sucks

    Reduce the amount of battery YouTube uses by not watching videos for 3 straight hours. I'm not really sure what you expected. It's unrealistic to think the phone should last all day when you have the screen on constantly.

    I say you had the screen on for 3 straight hours because that's exactly what the last screenshot you posted indicates. The blue bar under where it says "screen on" is lit up for almost the entire 3+ hours you had the phone on battery.

    Post your screen on time...we can attempt to decipher it ourselves from the graph but apparently our assumptions are wrong.

    I just checked mine and I'm at about 11 hours and most of usage is from Android system. 13% of battery usage was android system. Is that normal?
